Although skin rashes may not necessarily prompt a visit to the school nurse's office, a rash associated with other systemic symptoms, such as fever, headache, difficulty swallowing or breathing, weakness, or abdominal pain, may cause a child to visit your office. This article describes the initial assessment and management of skin rashes in children and adolescents and delineates reasons that may prompt the school nurse to transfer a student with a rash to a local emergency department.

Shoulder joint kinematics has been used as a representative indicator to investigate musculoskeletal symptoms among computer users for office ergonomics studies. The traditional measurement of shoulder kinematics normally requires a laboratory-based motion tracking system which limits the field studies. In the current study, a portable, low cost, and marker-less Microsoft Kinect™ sensor was examined for its feasibility on shoulder kinematics measurement during computer tasks. Eleven healthy participants performed a standardized computer task, and their shoulder kinematics data were measured by a Kinect sensor and a motion tracking system concurrently...

Reductions in spoken language complexity have been associated with the onset of various neurological disorders. The objective of this study is to analyze whether similar trends are found in professional football players who are at risk for chronic traumatic encephalopathy. We compare changes in linguistic complexity (as indexed by the type-to-token ratio and lexical density) measured from the interview transcripts of players in the National Football League (NFL) to those measured from interview transcripts of coaches and/or front-office NFL executives who have never played professional football...

Police provide an essential public service and they often operate in difficult circumstances, requiring high-speed cognition. Recent incidents involving apparent profiling and aggressive behavior have led to accusations that the police are sometimes biased. Given that previous research has shown a link between clothing and cognition, we investigated the question of whether the police uniform itself might induce a bias in social attention. To address this question, and using a Canadian university student sample, we assessed whether wearing a police uniform biases attention toward black faces compared to white faces, and low-status individuals compared to high-status individuals...

68 Background: Telephone triage is a vital part of today's oncology practice and is often not standardized and measured to allow for quality improvement. UPMC CancerCenter (UPMC) has 31 outpatient clinics and is in need of a tool to streamline the current telephone triage process. UPMC and Via Oncology collaborated to develop and pilot a prototype of an electronic telephone triage application. The key components of the prototype were defined as decision support, EHR integration, reporting and workflow management...

91 Background: Although advance care planning and the completion of advance directives (ADs) are important methods to prevent unwanted aggressive care once patients have lost their decision-making capacity, only a minority of patients have ADs at the time of cancer diagnosis. METHODS: We established a new multidisciplinary outpatient clinic to provide comprehensive care to patients with newly diagnosed cancer at the Inova Dwight and Martha Schar Cancer Institute in Northern Virginia. Improvement in advance care planning was chosen as one of the first quality improvement initiatives for 2015...

When it comes to business, there is no one thing that ensures success. However, focusing on helping as many patients as possible and tracking those results, creating a program to gather referrals from your own patients, setting a goal each month, and having a key employee to guide operations at the front desk to ensure that every patient is treated well and has an awesome experience at your office will go a long way to steering a practice to success.

In December 1913, a board of medical officers was appointed to adapt new U.S. Army equipment to the needs of the Hospital Corps. One of the improvements concerned substitution of the satchel-like Hospital Corps pouch used to carry first aid equipment. A waist belt with 10 pockets, known as the medical belt, was devised, and supplied with a tourniquet, adhesive plaster, safety pins, iodine swabs, sublimated gauze, individual dressing packets, gauze bandages, aromatic spirit of ammonia, and common pins. In addition, an ax carrier accommodating a hand ax, a canteen hanger, and a pouch to carry diagnosis tags and instruments were attached to the medical belt...
